Thandi Ntuli

Switzerland | Music

February - June — Music

Thandi Ntuli was born in one of South Africa’s largest townships, Soshanguve in Pretoria. She comes from a lineage of rich musical heritage, being the niece of guitarist, pianist and lead vocalist of 70’s pop fusion band Harari (The Beaters), Selby Ntuli.

Since the release of her debut jazz album, “The Offering” which she released independently, Thandi has  been fast making an imprint in the local jazz scene with her unique voice. “The Offering” has received critical acclaim as well as numerous awards and recognition since its release in 2014.

For her studio residency she will explore writing her new project, ‘Sketches of Mali’, referencing Mile Davis’ Sketches of Spain, the music of Mali, interwoven with her own compositional voice. A ‘heritage driven’ project, she intends to delve into that which is representative of what she perceives to be her experience in the world at present.

“My hope is to work with a Swiss arranger who, coupled with my ideas of composition and arrangements, will help bring the balance of both worlds,” she says.
